Double tail is really a single tail?

Hi there! I just wanted to share some pictures of my newest guy who I took home a few weeks ago. His name is Adonis because he's absolutely beautiful and knows it, frequently posing for the camera. Anyway, when I first purchased him, he was labeled as a double tail - I couldn't leave that beautiful creature in a cup. Over time, though, it would seem that his fins are actually growing together and getting longer - the edges are becoming less frayed. If anyone could identify his fin type exactly it might be helpful. Here are some pics.
1- In his cup at the store, I couldn't bear to let him stay there any longer.
2- The day after introduction to the tank, swimming around freely.
3- Happy little guy!
4- Resting on the driftwood, being beautiful.
5 and 6- Taken just now, noticing his tail and fin growth.

Definitely a doubletail - the distinct caudal lobes and high dorsal fin are giveaways. He's beautiful! Sometimes when they get older and healthier their fins grow out somewhat, so that may be what is happening to your boy.

Alright, good to know! I wasn't sure, since there was skin growing between his two 'tails', but I appreciate the confirmation.
